Frittata with Asparagus, Tomatoes and Feta - Recipe

Asparagus contains high concentrations of cancer-fighting antioxidants, such as vitamins A, C and E

Ingredients:

8 large egg whites
8 large eggs
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 bunch fresh asparagus, washed and trimmed into 1 inch pieces (cut off and discard 1/3 of stalk)
3 vine-ripe tomatoes, seeded, chopped into ½ inch dice
1 Tbsp. chopped garlic
2 Tbsp. fresh basil, finely chopped
1/3 cup feta cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Whisk first 4 ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. Heat olive oil in an oven-safe, 10” nonstick skillet. Sauté asparagus until tender-crisp, about 4-5 minutes.  Add tomatoes and garlic, sauté 2 more minutes. Add chopped basil.
  4. Pour egg mixture over sautéed vegetables and reduce heat to low. Move eggs around until they just start to cook on the bottom. Sprinkle top with feta cheese, transfer pan to oven and bake until cooked through, and slightly golden on top; about 10-15 minutes. Cut into 6 wedges.
